Charlotte, NC – Dec. 4, 2020 – Charlotte-based leadership advisory firm, Summit Leadership Partners, makes its debut on the 2020 Charlotte Business Journal Fast 50 list, a prestigious award gathering the fastest-growing private companies in the city.

The Charlotte Business Journal’s Fast 50 winners are determined using a formula that reflects dollar and percentage growth in revenue during a three-year period.

“We are honored to join the ranks of some of the most hard-working, successful companies in Charlotte,” said Dan Hawkins, Founder & CEO, Summit Leadership Partners. “I’m grateful for this opportunity to be able to pause and recognize each member of our organization and how hard they’ve worked.

We’re looking forward to continuing a strong growth trajectory in 2021 and launching an exciting new lineup of products and services; but for now, we will celebrate our talented team’s hard work and commitment as we close out this tough year.”
